Aerodyn were pleased to have the opportunity to take part, promoting our products and services and holding valuable conversations with the expo participants. In attendance from Aerodyn were Ken Clodfelter, Executive VP and Dave Lawrence, President.
Ken and Dave met with a number of Crane employees and representatives of other complementary businesses, whereby a multitude of future opportunities will emerge. These meetings support the early stages of Aerodyn becoming one of a handful of preferred suppliers that will be provided unique contract opportunities.
